"Company founder Albert Berner still personally experienced the war and we as a couple were able to experience the terrible reality of the war through him as a contemporary witness," the statement reads. And further: "We Berners are shaped by our values and the European democratic ideals. We believe in achievement, we believe in independence to provide peace and stability with prosperity. We believe in hard work, which enables us to carry democracy." But the people in Ukraine are in danger of losing everything they have built up, and it is the children who suffer the most. They are defenceless and they cannot defend themselves against the war, writes the entrepreneurial couple. "We therefore want to act immediately and, on behalf of the Berner Group and the Board of Directors, have made a donation of 200.000 EUR. We have opted for large relief organisations in order to be able to guarantee that everything gets to the right places quickly in the confusing situation
